Leaders and members of the Congress party protested in Nagpur city of Maharashtra on Wednesday as they blocked trains shouting slogans against hike in train fares and demanded a complete rollback. Earlier on Tuesday, lawmakers from Mumbai met Railway Minister Sadananda Gowda to convey the strong sentiments of commuters using the suburban trains in Mumbai over steep fare hike. The government later agreed to the partial rollback, and announced that the recent hike of 14.2 per cent in passenger fares will not apply to second class suburban journey upto 80 kms, thus providing relief to lakhs of travellers. Local trains, a lifeline in the city, ferry more than six million commuters every day. In rest of the country, passenger fares have been increased by 14.2 percent, while freight charges have gone up by 6.5 percent respectively, eliciting people's outrage.
